Come enjoy fellow-ship. Adults and children invited.

 

Card making workshop. Attention card makers and card maker wannabes. Saturday September 9th, the mission board will be hosting a morning of card making, you will learn new techniques and have fun doing so. We will have a guest who will bring all the supplies and provide instruction. It will be a fun time learning new things and visiting with friends and maybe new friends. The cost is $10 per person (an adult/child combo would be one cost for one set of cards). You will make 10 cards and we ask that you donate one or two to the board so we can send them to the troops. We need ten people to make it happen. Bring a friend or two, it’s a nice way to visit and do a good thing at the same time.
